Knitting Level 4: Brioche


Explore the extensive possibilities of brioche knitting! Brioche creates a wonderfully plush, widely ribbed fabric. In this class you’ll learn brioche basics and your instructor will support you in working through a simple project. Choose your own pattern or make the Beehive Brioche Cowl.

Your chosen pattern must be:

  • Knit in the round
  • Limited to 2 colours
  • A project that doesn’t offer technical challenges apart from the brioche (for example, if you are comfortable making hats but not mittens, choose a hat project)

You will learn how to:

  • Work brioche flat and in the round
  • Use double increase and decrease techniques
  • Use special cast-on and bind-off techniques

You should know how to:

  • Follow a pattern
  • Knit and purl
  • Cast on and bind off
  • Work in the round
